Spring Install in L.A.

Thanks to this forums advice I am going to buy the Eiback Pro Kit springs for my E90. A local tire shop that I value and trust quoted me a price a bit higher than I can buy the Springs from online, but what really caught me off guard was that they were saying install would be $375, which seems crazy high, considering some guys can do this install on their own. I wanted to see if any of you Los Angelenos have any good places around town to buy/install these springs cheap. Thanks.

You could buy any of those springs used from local members. I believe there are alot out there for sale right now. As for install... I believe you could contact Long Tran. He is pretty decent on pricing with a good reputation.

Thanks, I'll check the F/S for the springs, but truth be told, for only $260 or so brand new, i don;t mind buying new.

$150 to install the springs? That's not too bad at all.

Did you end up selling the 360 Mesh 10's?

Ya he should charge you $150. Ask for Vincent and if he gives you another price say Golan sent me.

As for the Mesh 10s, I still have them, looking for a buyer.

I trust the guys at Renn-Spec with all of the work done to my car.

They put on my KW's a couple days ago and they did an amazing job.

Very knowledgeable. I recommend them to get your springs on. They will give you a good price if you want to buy from them also.

Spoke to Renn-Spec, they deserve props, Jason is the man! However I am buying them and getting them installed by Long Tran, his pricing was solid.

Got them installed by Long today. He did a great job and it took just about 1 hour. Real cool guy and does very good/professional work.
